'Thursday 'Evening; May 12, 1921. LAFAYETTE JOURNAL AND COURIER U.S. SYNDICATE WILL DEVELOP .0 COUNTRY Siberian Coal and Oil Region important Field for v. American Industrial Energy. By FREDERIC J. HASKIN WASHINGTON, D. C. May 12. The undeveloped wilderness of Siberia is the natural outlet for the iiinrippiinar snirit of Ampripa nnw that it has crossed the American j continent. The Far East, to make t a paradox, is the New West. j ; But the conquest of this new j frontier is to be a bloodless one. i It is to be a conquest of devel- ' opnient, relying for its success on the cooperation for mutual benefit of the American people and the; Russian people. , ' ! This is understood to be the ' m CT , j I view of the American capitalists ( who have , obtained great eonces- i sions of coal and o;l lands, and trapping and fishing rights in Si beria irom tne soviet government. The Vanderlip Syndicate, as this organization is commonly called, has been the subject of a great deal of speculation. It has made a deal with the Soviet government. What are to be the conse quences of such a move? Does it i mean that American capital, -' ! tI nasi approves 01 ,7.V1 "r',.6"'"""""-' . sequences will follow this most daring and - spectacular move of American finance? All of these questions have been asked again and again, and also i.variously answered in a- speculative way by critics of the enterprise. The answer of the men who have ; put their money into the Vanderlip Syndicate is about as follow; The enterprise of the syndicate j is a purely industrial enterprise, and is intended to have no political implications. It does not mean that the men represented by the syndicate approve of the de facto government .of R ussia. On the other hand, it has been especially stipulated that American, and notj soveit standards of and methods of I rich.

' ' Tf ia its enterprise, and that it believes the stakes are worth the chances taken. A MARKET FOR THE WEST. . What it especially emphasizes is the importance of Siberia as a field for American industrial energy. The Pacific coast, it points out, is rapidly becoming a great industrial, manufacturing community. ;This community needs two things raw material and a market for its products. Unless it finds a foreign maiket for its products, these must necessarily come more and more into competition with the manufacturers of the East and the Middle West, t The fact which the syndicate wishes to impress upon the American ; people iSi that Siberia is the logical source of raw material and the logical market for manufactur ed products of the great Pacific coast industries. It is not .generally realized that the Peninsula, of Kamchatka is no further from San Francisco than is the Panama Canal. It Is only 10 days from i Seattle to Kamchatka by fieight steamer. It therefore follows that the great Pacific coast cities are really closer to Siberia than they are to South America. Furthermore, Siberia is much less developed than South America, and therefore offers far greater opportunities. Of special importance is the enormous coal supply of Siberia. There are no important coal deposits on the Pacific coast, and the expense of getting a coal supply there is one of the great obstacles I vi ! to the industrial the Pacific coast. It is stated on .,..v.:. t. ,; t , . f authority of the syndicate that . t.'.v,.i .. coal from the Kamchatka mines could be delivered to the Pacific cities a one ha?f he present market price. It is also stated ; that there is enough coal in the concession area to supply 10 times the number of industries now opening on the Pacific cgast for 500 years. Under these circumstances the favor which .the project finds on the Pacific coast is understandable. To develop these coal mines is to be the first great object of the syndicate. Its concession gives it the exclusive right to develop the coal and oil deposits in Siberia east of the IGOth meridian. The extent of the oil deposits does not seem to be so. well known as that of the coal deposits. The concession also gives the syndicate the exclusive light to develop the fishing and fur industries in that region. Kamchatka, which is really a near neighbor cfthe United Sates, is almost as unknown to the 'American people as the moon. It is truly a region in need .of pioneers, being in about the same condition of development that our own Rocky Mountain region was 75 years ago. In 1900 its population was less than 8,000, although its area is more than a hundred thousand square miles. There are a few Russians in the county but t rcf rf thn rciTvle bo1on to sev- ITCHY PIMPLES AIL OVER FACE Very Red and Would Scale Over. Could Not Sleep. Cuticurafteals. " I had pimples all over my face that were very red and would fester and scale over. They itched and I could not help scratching them, and sometimes I could not sleep. They started in spots on my face, and after a while my face was almost one blotch of pimples. " I used Cuticura Soap an Ointment and the pimples started to heal, and after using three boxes of Cuticura Ointment with the Cuticura Soap I was healed."

Yet it would seem that some sort of agriculture could be established, for native grasses grow to a great height, and the flora in general is not as far iway as Hawaii to which so many Americans go annually.
